The Kinetics Grand Championship takes place over the Memorial Day Weekend. Human powered art vehicles race over land, sand and sea for fifty miles all for the glory!
This year, Northcoast Horticulture Supply, Humboldt Green, House & Garden and Sensational Solutions have teamed up to sponsor the Mad Plants Beyond the Thunderclone Kinetics machine. Kinetics team leader Scott Cocking of Sideshow Designs shared several photos with us of the machine in progress.
We can’t wait to check out the finished machine at the Kinetics Grand Championship starting line on the Arcata Plaza on Saturday, May 26th. Help us cheer the Mad Plants team on to the finish line! The NHS crew will be out documenting the Kinetics team during the race. If you happen to snap a picture and post it to social media, use the hashtag #madplantskgc so we can find it and share it.
